    I don't want to letter my van, because its permanent. And i dont want to get magnets because I hear they are always falling off and getting stolen.

    So, would it be worthwhile to letter my trailer? Both sides, then figure out how to put somthing on the ramp when its up.
    Or would this just plain look rediculous?
    Thanks, Adam

    Actually doing the trailer is probably the best way to go! I agree, it hurts to stick anything on the paint job on a vehicle. Magnets ruin paint and vinal, even though it's removeable, the paint fades around it and then your letters are still there after they're gone, lol!

    Signs on the gate are easy, just use a sheet of aluminimum like they use for real estate signs. For that matter you can use the same for signs on the sides too. I assume you have an open trailer?

    I just got a new to me truck for my business. I don't want to stick anything on the truck itself, but I have a dumpbed with nice smooth metal sides so I can have those lettered.

    I have one magnet on the tailgate of my truck, and then also have the ramp of my trailer lettered. It looks nice, and lets your name be seen from a number of different angles.

    Lettered trailers look great, especially if they are enclosed. They look like billboards on wheels. :)
